I have an 8 week old Aussie and he is completely housetrained, can sit and lay..BUT will NOT stop mouthing me and my arms and hands have had enough! I need any help what so ever. I hve tried *no bite* I have tried yelping loudly and then ignoring, I have tried holding his lower jaw, spanking on the butt...nothing helps and I am highly frustrated with his behavior. any suggestions?
We have 2 Begal/Dingo mixes and they were VERY hyper as pups. My grandparents and uncle simply rolled up a news paper and smacked it on THEIR hand making a loud noise to calm them down.
Not once did they ever actully hit the dog with the news paper. and now whenever they missbehave and see someone rolling up any kind of paper be it 1 sheet of computer paper or a newspaper they stop whatever they were doing.
Perhaps just a loud noise will work for you as well.
